Could it be any more exciting? The Friends sofa will visit Edinburgh on September 16.

And now, fans of classic US sitcom Friends will be given a unique chance to celebrate the anniversary of the show's debut later this month when the famous sofa hits the Capital.

Edinburgh’s busiest park will be ‘transformed’ into Central Perk, a quarter of a century after Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross first appeared on our TV screens.

A replica of the Central Perk settee, which featured prominently in the iconic opening titles, will be plonked by the Ross Fountain in Princes Street Gardens with Edinburgh Castle as its backdrop later this month as part of a UK-wide tour of iconic British landmarks to celebrate the big milestone.
